1 Kings 3:9 "Here's what I want: Give me a God-listening heart so I can lead your people well, discerning the difference between good and evil. For who on their own is capable of leading your glorious people?"
I love God with all of my heart, there is no doubt about that. Sometimes though, I don't listen so well. I go about my day, too busy, too distracted, I listen to others, co-workers, my daughter, my friends, I respond openly to requests made of me, I even do it with a grateful heart.....most of the time.....BUT..... I don't listen to the one I should be listening to all the time. Don't get me wrong, there are days when the message is loud and clear and I feel so connected to God. The days when the message is more gentle, more quiet, I have to admit, my listening skills leave much to be desired. So, today, tomorrow....etc....I am asking Him to give me a GOD listening heart so that I can do HIS work, so that I too can discern the difference between good and evil. How is your heart today? Is it listening?
